Self-Reliance the way of Destruction

Psalm 49:12 ” Such is the way of those who foolishly trust in themselves, and in the end of those who delight in their own words. “

For many of us depend on ourselves to, ” make it happen.” We have an idea of God, of Jesus and even pray for our own ends. But in many cases we know better than God. We struggle in anxiety, in fear and move forward in a deceived mind set. And yes we even experience some success, yet are plagued with struggles. And so the word tells us to Trust in the Lord with all our hearts, all our minds and all our souls. That we not lean on our own understanding. That He will make our crooked paths straight!!! In self-reliance we say maybe for some, but I am in control and I know best.

So the question remains. When are you going to let go and allow God to rule ALL areas of your life? You have said my life is not my own. Yet here you are controlling, fearing with anxiety every day. Which is it, God either is or He is not? It is your choice.

Mid-Week Prayer: ” Lord, Lord, Lord I struggle with my self more than any other problem in my life. I seek Thee yet continue on in self. In times self-destruction. Help me to be the overcomer that I am in Thee. Help me to cast aside my self for a life surrendered in Thee. Thy will be done. Lord help me to Love Thee, Love others and to Love Thee in me. Amen!
